New surrounds for Plats and Silvers woofers!

Hey guys I just want to let you guys know I am working hard on a little project to see if I can get a company here in the USA to make surrounds for the woofers in the Plats and Silvers! I am looking for a close to factory replacement as posible with the added tech to make them last longer! This is a hard one because the specks on the woofer are out of the norm and made in china. I have a refoamer calling a company to see if we can have them made up and he will sell them to us and use them to repair the woofer we send him for the people that do not want to get their hands dirty! What ever info I get or if I get anything before CF09 I will bring with me! Eddie!

I can use about 20 right now. The AR surrounds just don't cut it.

Re: New surrounds for Plats and Silvers woofers!

One possible fly in the ointment. I have been told by someone in the know that because the foam surrounds are glued to the very thin paper cone that the risk of tearing the paper when trying to remove the foam/glue is very high.

One would also need a jig to align the cone and voice coil to prevent rubbing.

Re: New surrounds for Plats and Silvers woofers!

Wouldn't it work OK to just glue the new surround on top of the old one that is glued to the cone rather than trying to remove it?

I'd get a new razor blade & carefully trim it off before I tried that, skip.

Re: New surrounds for Plats and Silvers woofers!

It would be necessary to remove all of the old suround. It would not take long for failure. Patience is key in this process.

Re: New surrounds for Plats and Silvers woofers!

The surround on my woofers are falling off by themself all I have to do is rub the cone and they are clean for the most part! As far as the voice coil all you need to do is remove the dust cap and use shims to line it up! Eddie!

Re: New surrounds for Plats and Silvers woofers!

f1 is right on with having a shim or something in the center to prevent coil rub. It is easy to get it out of line and you wont know till it is too late. i have done some infinity ones and learned my lesson fast. I had to redo them. The next few sets all went smooth though lol. You do have to remove the old stuff or the glue will not stick properly.
